[#508] Well, I Do

If they say

Who cares if one more light goes out
In the sky of a million stars?
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out
If a moment is all we are?
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well, I do

Linkin Park, ♫One More Light

No truer words could be said at this moment as I’m taking a special moment from my regularly scheduled blogging to put out this tribute post. Plenty of people think it is silly how society as a whole becomes attached to celebrities (Actors/Actresses, Musicians, Authors and other known persons) but they come into our lives and in some way make an impact on us that is with us for however long we exist.

When someone is no longer on this planet whether it be of old age, disease, accident or even suicide it’s impact can have a huge effect on the society which valued the body of work they have given the world and that is why tonight I am remembering Chester Bennington. His voice and words may have been from one degree to another from despair to hope they’ve lasted in many of Linkin Park’s fans that are still reeling from a year ago when he took his own life.

Everyone can try to play armchair therapist or say that there’s always a way to fix things but maybe sometimes it is too late for someone to realize it and they feel it is too far help. Many of us wish that we could have given back to him everything he gave to the fans and it will always ring through our minds and hearts. I’ve spoken to several people today who have been helped in some way by his words, that have helped them cope and grieve over their issues to rise up from them and take that knowledge to help the next person.

I as much as anyone else miss him and through the music of the band that we do have (and maybe from things that could be released from the vault later on if there is such a thing) we’ll always be able to carry his memory. If it is possible and anyone is reading this tonight, light a candle in honor of Chester whether you enjoyed his art or not and not only him, light it for someone you’ve lost.

Until our paths cross again, on to the next conversation…
